An ice rink is only as good as the compressor that helps keep the ice frozen. Ours has outlived expectations but is living on borrowed time. This is an expensive purchase for a non-profit ice rink and we are asking the community for help.
The Beaver Dam Family Center Ice Arena has produced generations worth of community leaders. The Family Center's programs not only give area youth an opportunity to stay in shape, they teach them about hard work and teamwork.
The rink, which receives no tax dollars, provides a home for the Beaver Dam Hockey Association, the Swan City Ice Skaters, The Wildfire Girls Hockey, and the Wisconsin Inspire Synchronized Skating Cooperative. It also offers community programs, ranging from learn-to-skate classes and affordable public open skates.
The Family Center's various hockey tournaments, skating competitions and other events fill hotel rooms and financially benefit local businesses.
Please help us continue to provide these benefits to our community.
